9. Great perspective, KYEG: Luckily, I'm not in a competitive career, so, no back-stabbing needed.

I've had to hold my ground with others who saw my purpose as largely ass-kissing and ass-covering. But those were not the people my career was supposed to serve. It was a reversal of the point, and I held my ground and I've got lots of knives in my back to show for it.

But I know the true, publicly stated clientele got my best, and it was always for their betterment that I got up and faced the negative backlash coming from those who forgot the true purposes.

I was able to find win-win solutions to most of the larger issues that arose. Sometimes, the judgement aspect of this paradigm can help make those happen. But that requires that someone keeps good intentions in their heart.

It sounds like you were chasing profits, and that corrupts all involved. Sorry to hear that. It sounds like you've worked hard to put your pieces back together. Good for you. Another lesson of middle age is the acceptance that we have to take care of ourselves; Others can't be counted on for that.
